Ever ahead of the curve, Too Faced Cosmetics hence had the right idea in mind when they gathered amongst friends and flowers at Ovando’s Madison boutique for “Midnight in the garden of glamour.”

Surrounded by the spellbinding colors and shapes of Ovando’s floral décor, the evening was a perfect opportunity to peruse the coming season’s cosmetic collection while sipping bubbly as well as other sweet libations.

In light of the “midnight in the garden” motif, Ovando’s color scheme centered upon deep purple vanda orchids mixed amongst green accents , with a few fuchsia and white articulations sprinkled about. Eye shadow palettes and other makeup accessories were paired against mixed florals and other embellishments to the likes of river rocks and sliced fruit.

To complement the lavish visual feast, guests were offered garden treats by the ingenious fellows of Garden Bon Bons.

Amongst other highlights, Too Faced cosmetics’’ Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino was there to toast to his guests as well as offer a little insight into his philosophy, “Why be pretty when you can be gorgeous?” Custom-blends provide his celebrity clientele with color palettes in one-of-a-kind formulations.

Being in the business of design, the mantra is certainly one that we can appreciate.
